Houston, we have a Chick-fil-A food truck.

The popular chicken fast food chain is opening a new food truck in Houston, the Houston Chronicle reported. The truck will be ready to launch on Dec. 15, and its menu will be limited to the Original Chicken Sandwich, the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, one or two cold entrées, and waffle fries. On its drink menu, the truck will offer sweet tea, unsweetened tea and lemonade.

The truck is currently undergoing safety and health inspections, though Jesse Chaluh, the Chick-fil-A franchisee spearheading the project, said he’s still looking into locations in Houston where the truck can park.

This isn’t Chick-fil-A’s first food truck: The chain’s first cow-covered vehicle arrived in Washington, D.C. in 2012. also serves a limited menu of chicken sandwiches, nuggets, fries and drinks.

Houston seems like an appropriate place for a Chick-fil-A food truck. The city hosts 74 Chick-fil-A restaurants, including two of the chain’s most popular locations nationwide.

The trucks are another play on the part of Chick-fil-A to reach out to bring more customers in the door. The chain launched a mobile app allowing customers to order and pay ahead of time, as well as rolling out healthier menu items like quinoa bowls, Eater reported.
